Does Yianni enter the question given his win over Bajrang?

I know others have responded, but I would just add that the UWW rankings are based on a scoring system that is affected significantly by participation--not quality. Bajrang Punia has never won a world title. He's been around a while and last year's silver was his best effort; and there is an argument to be made that his draw was very, very favorable to have arrived in the title match. This to say, it's a very nice win for Yianni--but in addition to the exhibition nature of the match, I would argue a win over Punia in any competition doesn't necessarily put you into a world gold favorite category. You have to beat 3 or 4 guys at about Bajrang's level to win gold.
